Question: Why aren’t we taught how to play nice, empower, compliment, support, lift, touch and love other little girls? -KC
You know that quote/meme that was circulating social media that said being a girlboss/woman was like belonging to an exclusive club with a tribe of other women behind you..something like that, y'all know what I’m talking about. Well help me understand why it takes so long for the majority of us to realize the real privileges of womanhood and sisterhood. I present You Can Sit With Us: The 5 Powers of Sisterhood:
1. Healing. We (women) heal unspoken wounds for one another through the incredible “gift of gab”. Girl talk, much needed venting sessions, dinner dates are healing mechanisms for our souls. It makes us feel so not alone in our mess. We naturally heal each other.
2. Beauty. We look good collaboratively. You know the saying “girls dress for other girls”. Well it definitely has some truth. Y'all be slaying and while I dress for my own empowerment I can’t help but be inspired by the slayage of my counterparts. We keep each other on our toes, we create new trends and express ourselves unapologetically. I love the power of our beauty, inner and outward.
3. Boys. They’re dumb and we have to process that together.
4. Success. Women are superhumans with emotions. I like to think of us with a cape and a cute shade of lipstick. We get degrees, run businesses, handle finances, have babies, carry the weight of entire generations and still slay. Did I mention we can do all of this alone, with the help of no one. That’s superhuman strength.
5. Support. You can sit with us!!! Yess, no mean girls here. That really cool club I spoke about really exists. We are so inspiring and supportive of one another when not strategically put against each other. We are the squad. We made the squad and yes sis you can sit with us. One of the most critical powers of sisterhood is knowing that squad is real. I mean hey where can you get brutal honesty about your OOTD and then talk about filing your taxes. We’re everything ladies so take a seat and let’s do this dream life together.
Until next time,
Peace & Sweet Dreaming,
